seeking iris

It was a gray morning, one that I knew could easily be brightened with a bit of color. I've started seeing iris in bloom; hoping that the buds I saw earlier this week had opened I headed to The Stevens-Coolidge Place this morning.

Tulips in varying stages of life are still in place, some past prime, some in full bloom, all beautiful.

The iris? They are just starting to bloom. I found one clump of iris in a salmon color with scattered clumps of buds throughout the perennial garden. This garden will need multiple visits over the next few weeks... I wonder what colors will emerge next.
